Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal has told the press that he believes Jose Mourinho doesn't teach his Inter squad how to play attractive football. The two sides will meet in the Champions League final on May 22.
The Nerazzurri played a very defensive second-leg at the Camp Nou against Barcelona to advance to the final, sparking a wild celebration from Mourinho at the full-time whistle.
"I would not have done what Mourinho did at the Camp Nou, I wouldn't have behaved in a provocative way," he said in an interview with Sport Bild.
Mourinho worked as Van Gaal's assistant at Barcelona early in his career.
"His analysis was good, even then you could see he understood football," he continued.
"But at that time he was very humble and it's great to see how he has evolved, he gradually became a personality."
Finally, the 58-year-old commented on Mourinho's style of play, suggesting Inter have no desire to take a more attractive approach to the game.
"He trains to win, so do I, but I also choose to express good football. My way is more difficult," he concluded.
